Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM) introduced CLARISOY 150, the first extension to the CLARISOY product line, at the 2012 Institute of Food Technologists Annual Meeting and Food Expo in Las Vegas. CLARISOY is a vegetable-based protein that offers clarity and complete protein nutrition for beverage applications.
CLARISOY 150 is described as a clean-tasting isolated soy protein specially processed for use in beverage systems with a pH of less than 4.0 with cloud systems or beverages neutralized to a pH of 7.0 or higher. Due to its clean flavor, the company says, and high solubility in higher pH ranges, CLARISOY 150 allows for greater use of soy protein in mildly flavored neutral beverages such as meal replacement and weight management products. The new product enables beverage manufacturers to comfortably formulate with up to 10 grams of protein per serving.
"CLARISOY 150 has an extraordinarily clean taste profile. Combined with its smooth mouth-feel, it offers a host of potential applications either as a replacement for, or to blend with, dairy protein," says Dr. Martin Schweizer, vice-president technical development of Burcon. "CLARISOY's potential to be blended with dairy protein or to be used in dairy-alternative applications has been a key focus of our research and patenting team for many years. Since our discovery of CLARISOY over four years ago we have continuously worked to expand its potential applications. The unique and revolutionary nature of this protein allows us to continue to discover new exciting uses for it even today."
